Bloomberg Businessweek has published its ranking of top US MBA programs for 2018.
This year, the MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business leads the ranking, moving up four spots and displacing Harvard from the leading position, which it had held for three years. Harvard's MBA is now ranked third; the MBA from UPenn's Wharton school is in position number two.
MIT Sloan's MBA, which was ranked third last year, is in fourth this year. The top-five is rounded out by the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.
The MBA from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, which was ranked 11th last year, has risen five spots to take the sixth position. Columbia Business School is in position number seven (up from nine), while the MBA from Kellogg holds steady at number eight. The MBAs from Virginia - Darden and Cornell - Johnson round out the top-10.
Bloomberg Businessweek's ranking lists US-based MBA programs based on a number of factors, including job placement data and student/alumni surveys. The magazine will publish its ranking of non-US MBA programs in December.
